PBPM Alumni Profile:

Ravi Sarpatwari 

 "I was impressed by how well balanced my classmates were. We played pick-up basketball every week and attended many Orioles games and outdoor concerts. It was remarkable to see in the midst of all the work we had to get done. The year’s going to be tough no matter where you do it, and having such a supportive and dynamic group really makes a difference."

In college at the University of Virginia, Ravi served as a firefighter and EMS technician. He worked in architecture after he graduated and continued to firefight, eventually becoming a captain and running his own crew.  He stayed on after his Goucher year to work with the post-bacs as the full-time Teaching Fellow. Now he is at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University where he is currently working on a project that combines Design and Medicine.
